What’s the aim of the seminar?
In 2016, the Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work (CEMFAW) Regulations came into force and every company in the UK is required to carry out a risk assessment. You may know very little about this subject, so this seminar is designed to take you through the requirements of the regulations so that you can see in a straightforward way what is going to be required in your company – it probably won’t be that onerous in the end.
This has the potential to be a mind-bending subject, but we aim to get you through it without baffling you with science and we will highlight the pertinent issues faced by most businesses and the most common ways of dealing with the requirement to assess risk.
Who should attend?
If you are responsible for health and safety in your organisation, then this will be the perfect way to find out more and learn what is involved in getting compliant – for most companies, it can be quite straightforward, and you don’t need to be a genius to learn the fundamentals of the law and how to deal with it
If in doubt, then please do come along and we can cater for you if you’ve never heard of EMF’s before or if you are an expert who just needs an update and a bit of a refresher.
Not only do our tutors have a vast amount of experience delivering seminars like this one, but they also have years of practical knowledge of dealing with the issues of Electromagnetic Fields.
Richard Melling used to work for a major environmental monitoring company but has had his own business for the past 4 years dealing solely with EMF compliance for companies large and small. His focus on these Regulations makes Richard the perfect tutor – he understands the issues you are going to be faced with and knows how to explain it is lay-terms
Simon Bull is the Managing Director at Castle Group and as has been involved in instrumentation and measurement of noise for the past 26 years, he is a member of the Institute of Acoustics and is active on their committees. He has been involved with the EMF regulations long before their introduction, when it was called the ‘Physical Agent’s Directive’
